Show don't tell

Beginning writers are always being urged by writing teachers to show, not tell. I am finding it so difficult to write interesting posts at the moment, that I've decided to rely on pictures for a while instead.

This one shows our dining room table this morning. If you look carefully you can see: a toy left over from our grandsons' visit yesterday, a bottle of New Skin for the wound on Dave's finger, daffodils from the garden, Dave's favourite mug du jour, today's Guardian and Telegraph, a Screwfix catalogue, Ezra Pound, a Bob Dylan songbook, a couple of veggie cookbooks that a friend has lent me for inspiration, and a remnant of fabric I am using to make patchwork bags.

And here is the bag I made which started off my current craze.
